Hiroshima JALT:

Going Beyond Memorization

Date: Thursday, July 24th, 2003 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: John Fanselow, Former TESOL President

While most would agree that memorizing words and patterns is necessary for language learning, other mental activities are necessary as well. Most of the tasks in textbooks, however, tend to emphasize activities or tasks that require memory alone. The purpose of this workshop is to experience ways to decrease the number of times students say "Sorry, I can't remember" and increase the frequency of students making statements such as "I think that..." or "I am not sure but I would guess that..." Said another way, participants in this workshop will learn ways to alter activities in textbooks that require only memorization so learners have opportunities to process language and use problem-solving skills as well.
